The museum is small but very well put together. The staff (1 man) is very knowledgeable about the history of the rose tree, the people of the town, and all of the artifacts that are on display. He has some wonderful stories about the people and it is clear that he loves his job and history. This was the best... More

A treasure trove of the early tools and history of the town. The main attraction is the rose tree and the history of the planting . It was started from a cutting sent from Scotland. It is now 8000 square feet.

This is interesting, and I guess the Museum part of the house is worth the entrance fee. The rose bush (tree) is quite amazing, but would not be worth the fee if it was by itself.

My wife really wanted to see this thing but to me it was just a green tree that cost me $10 to see. I guess if you were into plants stop on in. Lots of neat artifacts make it some what worth the visit.

The person working at the museum was wonderful. He is a really well informed individual and had answers to our many questions. The rose tree is so beautiful and the admission price was well worth it. Many old photos with well written description to give people the history of the area, prominent families from the area as well as activities... More

If you are in Tombstone, make sure you find the Rose Tree Inn. The tree is gigantic and smells wonderful. There are a lot of interesting items in the old Inn too.

The rose tree is impressive, especially thriving in the desert. Definitely returning during blooming season. Its rose type is a white Lady Banksia. There were quite a few historical things inside to look at, mostly about the family that lived in the home. It was a small museum. I bought a rose clipping for around 12 dollars. It looks healthy,...

The tree came from Scotland a long time ago and has grown so big and is super beautiful. It is a must see for anyone coming to Tombstone.
